Stroud Valleys Project is launching a new project called Wild About Stroud that will train volunteers to deliver seasonal outdoor activities including walks, outdoor conservation and food growing activities in our local community.

The Project is funded by Gloucestershire County Council’s Active Together fund through County Councillors, Sarah Lunnon (Central Ward) & Brian Oosthuysen (Rodborough Ward.)

“The sheer joy of being next to the river in the woods, will, due to this project become available to many more of us.” Said Cllr Sarah Lunnon. “It's for adults and children to enjoy being a little wild and adventurous, but in walking distance of Stroud and Rodborough.”

As part of the project, Stroud Valleys Project will be working in five green spaces around Stroud including Frome Banks nature reserve where we will be working in partnership with Gloucestershire Wildlife Trust to enhance the site, improve access and create a children’s wild play area.

Tamsin Bent, Wild About Stroud Project Officer says, “We want this project to encourage people to use beautiful green spaces like Frome Banks nature reserve and Capel’s Mill that link Stroud Town Centre and Rodborough to the Commons and wider countryside as well as benefitting the local community.”

As part of the project we will also be devising six walks which will be led by trained volunteers and produce a series of leaflets (downloadable from our website and available from our eco shop in Threadneedle Street), so people can do self-guided walks after the project ends.

We are now looking for volunteers to join our new team, so if you have a few of hours to spare on a Wednesday morning and would enjoy being involved in seasonal outdoor activities and/or train to be a walk leader we would love to hear from you.
